The program gave me skills that I wouldn’t have had otherwise. Like managing my time, and being responsible for my work. Access does a good job of making kids learn responsibility early.

It still amazes me that I’ve had somebody in my corner since the 6th grade. Access has followed me until I graduated from college.

I like how the Graduate Support Directors push us. They want our hard work to pay off, and they want us to succeed. Their philosophy is: ‘Shoot for the moon and if we miss, at least we end up in the stars.’

Because of the education I have received through Access and Bishop DuBourg High School, I have applied and been accepted to 49 colleges, 39 of which gave me extensive and prestigious scholarships. As a result, I have around $2.9 million dollars in college scholarships.

When you have someone like Ms. Amy, a college and career counselor, on your side, it makes everything easier. She was helpful in a thousand different ways.
